Patrick W. Marsh has just begun an interesting work of suspense fiction. A prequel to his post-apocalyptic novel The Greenland Diaries, The Unnamed is a tale of three children who enter a wooded area in Minnesota named Snake Tooth Pass, and then . . . well, according to one of the children speaking as an adult decades later, they begin a four-century adventure.
The first two installments establish fully-imagined characters in a world that is both familiar and strange. I have no idea where this story is going, but I’m eager to see what lies at the destination — and creating that feeling in the reader is the the suspense writer’s primary task.
